Alaska Weddings: Chelsea + Lee

admin Weddings Leave a Comment

I love how small Alaska is even though it’s the largest state. When groom Lee told me he was from Unalakleet I was positive he would know our old family friends from there. Turns out Lee is their nephew. After making a couple of other personal revelations I felt an instant connection to this couple.

Chelsea and Lee wanted winter wedding themes without it looking like the Queen of Hearts. With burgundy, white and gold as their theme colors I knew I could provide them with festive florals on a budget.

Carnations get a bad rap. I love their ruffles and color versatility. They are excellent filler without making an arrangement look cheap. Thankfully Chelsea likes carnations because there aren’t  many burgundy blooms available in Alaska in November.

A touch of gold ribbon with these dainty boutonnières was an elegant choice. Made with white and red spray roses, white statice, mini myrtle, white wax flower, eucalyptus and some natural feathers.

I absolutely loved Chelsea’s vision for the flower girl’s crown. She wanted mostly greens with a touch of color. I’m happy with the result and so was the flower girl.

I’m so happy with the bridal bouquet. The lacy plumosa fern intertwined with the most gorgeous roses I’ve encountered in a long time. The sage green of the eucalyptus was a great contrast to the flowers.

Chelsea arranged the centerpieces to sit atop small birch stumps. The giant golden pinecone with the gold and white table number tied the whole centerpiece together nicely.
